The Girl Scouts of Jackson County plan to collect canned goods and nonperishable items during the Seymour Oktoberfest parade at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 5.
The collection will benefit Anchor House, a homeless shelter in Seymour that also operates a pantry. Board members with Anchor House plan to join scouts as they push shopping carts to collect the items during the parade.
Those wishing to donate may bring items to the parade and give them to one of the scouts.
